overwhelmingly passed question three. it was proposed offer councilwoman leslie johnson pleaded guilty in the corruption scandal of her husband, former prince george's county executive jack johnson. initially, leslie johnson refused to step down from office. she eventually did step down and pled guilty to the charges. question three says a politician will be suspended from office at the moment he or she is found guilty and is automatically removed when the appeals process is finished. >>> 6:48 now. in the district we will see a new face on the d.c. council. in a major upset, incumbent michael brown lost his seat to independent david grosso. meanwhile, vincent orange easily won re-election. news 4's derrick ward is live with more on that election. >> reporter: good morning. it took somewhere around 20,000 votes to unseat michael brown. as you said, an independent at large council challenger david grosso was the political newcomer who won the battle against brown. brown has faced allegations of spending impropriety in his campaign as well as questions about the operation of a nonprofit t
and i'm working with mike and leslie on the program, what kind of words would describe what we're doing? well, certainly impressive is one. reassuring is one, that we see what's going on, the planning, the capabilities. i think another is to underline the importance and then this panel in particular they underline t the importance of looking on this as a building operation. each year has been a little better than the year before or different. if that's been iterative or a plus [speaker not understood]. somebody asked if we could keep this going. may i remind you it's been going for 31 years. we've had this last two years that have been the most impressive iteration, but it's been going for a long while. let me try to sort of summarize it by using an image. how many of you have looked closely at the great seal of our republic? if you look closely you'll see that the center piece is an eagle. the eagle holds an olive branch to show that united states will always seek peace. let me say not only peace, but the united states will always seek solutions to problems. we're a pragmatic people th
. there is plenty we don't know about election 2012. >> we have lesli foster to help crunch the numbers. the key races, ballot questions and the big prize of the presidency, how it might shake out when the last votes are counted. >> reporter: i'm joined by my partner in crunching, bob kettle who's the dean of the school of public policy at the university of maryland. let's take a look at two swing counties in virginia to get a bit of a picture. loudoun and prince william county. at last check, in prince william county it's almost a dead heat there. romney gets 48.6 to the president's -- in loudoun with more than 97% of the precincts reporting, president obama gets 51.4% of the vote to governor romney's 47.1%. now, when we compare that to 2008, you can see that the president won loudoun by 53.6%, and then prince william county by 57.5%. what do all these numbers tell us, don? >> what's going on here is that the president is looking not comfortable, but at least perhaps well enough to win virginia, but he has lost support in some of these key swing counties compared to where he had been back in 20
and will not set women back 50 years and finally leslie says i think equal pay for equal work is the most pressing issue for women this election. what do you think? i'll get back to you on that. this is referring to the 2009 lilly ledbetter fair pay act and i know, diane, you spoke to governor romney about this. he said while he didn't support it at the time, if he were elected he would not repeal it. but that lack of support, i think, did influence a number of women out there. >> yes, and then ultimately he wouldn't tell me. he would not say whether he, indeed, would have signed it if it came to his desk. i don't believe he ever said he would have signed it if it came to his desk. so, cokie, on this issue of the single ladies out there and other women -- what do you think? >> i'm certainly seeing single ladies being overwhelmingly for president obama as they were four years ago and there's no real falloff there, but i was just looking to see if we had a number on that abortion question to see if that seems to be the indicator. the problem is people tend to say when you ask about, you know, what i
victims. leslie bernstein: we have a program here at the university of southern california called the cancer surveillance program. this is one of a number of population based cancer registries around the country. a population based cancer registry defines geographic boundaries of a population and then collects information on cancer that develops in the population living within that geographic boundary. in the late 1970s, brian henderson was working at a mission hospital in new guinea when the chinese government asked him to be a consultant on cancer. dr. henderson: premiere zhou en lai had bladder cancer. in the course of his illness, he became interested in cancer and actually was a mover in getting a national register of cancer cases. a million barefoot doctors in every village in china recorded every cause of death. and then, the chinese, using relatively unsophisticated computer technology made maps of the distribution of cancer. they knew where concentrations of cancer victims were located, but not why. why was there more stomach cancer in certain parts of the country... more
